But there are a few things that nobody seems to speak about.
This display adapter uses the processor in order to render graphics. This means that your graphics card is no longer used.
Yes it will display all the content on amazon prime videos but non of it will be in full HD because this is not a recognised HDCP display port. So you will be watching videos in standard definition.
The product itself does work but if you are looking into playing a game in better resolution or using photoshop or related adobe products, the processor will be used at about 99% of its capacity. My i7 1.73ghz had a really bad time in processing almost everything while working with a photo.
Battlefield 4 will be a nightmare. Playing this game or looking at the infamous blue screen is the same.
Changing the resolution on my monitor to the best setting available 2560 x 1440 meant that everything looked as out of this world. But trying to watch a 4K video on youtube made that impossible because the processor was too busy rendering graphics and was not able to handle everything else like... downloading the video, managing the chrome processes and so on.
So if you have an extremely powerful processor and no videocard then you should probably buy a video card also and enjoy the computer as it was meant to be used.
If you are only looking at pictures all day long or browse social networking websites then this device will offer you a very pleasant ... view.
I would recommend this for someone who does not use it and instead uses the monitor only as a photo frame displaying high resolution pictures.
It does a great job at having an extra monitor if you need some static information like... shortcuts or sticky notes.
I will say, however, that you should not buy this if you're expecting an experience similar to using DisplayPort on anything greater than 1080p - there's noticeable lag with the update delay. Mouse movements are not quite as snappy as they could be. HOWEVER, this is not the intended use of this device.
If you're looking for something to connect a USB 3.0 port to a screen used mainly for things you don't need a high refresh rate/fast reaction times then this is the tool for you (e.g. watching movies, browsing the net, etc).
I've used this with a couple of laptops/computers and a couple of screens. The most impressive combo is an Asus transformer T100TA running on a 1440p Dell Ultrasharp - works surprisingly well!
After just 2 months my device is exhibiting very weird behaviour; I get a flickering screen and lose the image for 2-3 seconds at a time, several times per minute. Have tried different usb ports, different drivers, and even a different laptop./ Unfortunately this just appears to boil down to shoddy build quality and QC. Not at all impressed!
